    Thought this was a video/webinar, it’s not. The reference document did cover the material well, in a concise but complete manner. Lots of information in a short paper.

    The test started with an incomplete question (#1!) with no provision to even select an answer. The test was otherwise fair and covered the material. Nothing tricky.

    1. Thank You for the course evaluation. The course is advertised as a text Course. We’ve fixed the incomplete question.
